3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Pale orange amber, bubbly off-white head fades to barely anything. Fruity apricot, hint of grassy apple hop, sweet malt nose. Palate is dry and spiced, hints of pepper, some caramel, slight phenolic notes, soft grassy peppery bitter finish. Not bad.

Bottle at home. Nice reddish-gold colour. Breezy aromas with a little hoppy marmalade and some banana. Flavours of apple and some weirdly pleasant aromatic flavours, like lavender or camomile. Goes down nicely. Very agreeable.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin white head, good lacing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden colored beer with a thick foamy white head. Flinty nose with hop pellet notes. Very carbonated and tingley on the tongue. Mineral flavors with nice bread crust. There are lots of hops in this beer, with bitter grapefruit rind and some green grass in the finish. This is a full flavored blond ale.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Hazy orange gold colour with thick off white head. Attractive initial hop aroma. More grassy hop in the mouth. Good initial sherbert hop up top, but then in the mouth the flavours get a little muddied with then a grassy hop finish. Starts well but tails off as the flavours in the mouth are not in harmony for me.
